    Actually I do.

    I also miss them not being very relevant when it comes to fielding competitive teams the last couple of decades.

    They keep trying with different coaches, but they just aren't recruiting well as their neighbors from mid-state.

    I never intimated that. I like the kid very much. I pray he doesn't end up in Washington.

    Well I've definitely been hoping he doesn't end up a Skin.

    That would suck, course I don't know if they got Peyton would be any better.

    You and me both. With Shanahan's bootleg passes and our seeming inability to sniff them out, we'd get murdered if we can't cover.

    If they get Peyton I won't care. We can get to Peyton Manning - he'll stay in one place and can't really bootleg.

    Guess I would still be scared of Peyton if he is healthy. He makes WRs better, and can put a team on his back. He would be a concern.

    Oh he'd be a concern for sure, but we've beaten him handily before. I wouldn't be that worried.

    Were it my choice, I would seriously be tempted to take Griffin over Luck. I know I'm in the minority on this.

    Wow, that's fast. As Vick has shown, that kind of speed should be good for at least 5 Lombardis.

    Yes, yes you are.

    (Assuming you are drafting for a NFL team running an NFL offense with the goal of winning Super Bowls. If you are instead drafting a track team, or to sell jerseys or have a QB with lots of endorsements deal, then you might be on to something.)

    I don't know if I would place Griffin on the same board with Luck.

    He's a no brainer #1 overall pick.

    Tedford had Aaron Rodgers.

    Prior to that he also had Joey Harrington.

    For a very long time, the Tedford system was deemed a "bust" system because of the way he taught QB's to read the field.

    Aaron Rodgers broke the mold.

    What is key for a QB to succeed in the NFL? A stable organization and system that they can grow into. Its why Rodgers has been so successful and Alex Smith struggled so much, one has had a consistent system for his entire career, the other had 7 different OC's.

    Does the skill set translate to the NFL? Luck's certainly does, better then anyone's has since Peyton.

    RG3 also has a skill set which translates to the NFL. Good size, terrific arm, great deep ball accuracy and a passer first.

    The running is just icing on the cake for both these guys. Although Luck is going to have to run a lot more because I am not afraid to say that his Stanford o-line will be better then the Colts o-line he has for the next 2 years

    I just hope he doesn't end up a Redskin because I don't want to root against the guy. Seems like a great kid. What's the most impressive thing about him is he has world class speed but he's not a running QB. At the college level, you could have had a successful offense just running the ball with him.

    Andrew Luck won't get 8 seconds to throw the ball next year.

    People thought Cam newton was going to be a major bust

    You can never predict, you just try and project based on skill set and how well they fit into your system.

    I firmly believe Cleveland ends up with him at the #2 spot.

    Someone who runs a gimmick college spread offense does not translate into the NFL.

    He doesn't have good size. He just avoided having terrible size. Strong arm and fast, yes. But it was a gimmick offense that caused his passing numbers. If you think his passing performance is elite, then you should want to draft Case Keenum because whatever you can point to as a passer production and skill set, Case can surpass Griffin.

    I think Griffin deserves to be the second drafted QB. But what I can't stand is people acting like he in the same class as Luck or a better prospect than Luck because he ran a gimmick offense.

    Any team drafting Griffin has to admit that he is being drafted as dual threat. There's no shame against admitting that. It's betting against history as far as success goes, but it is reasonable risk. What is silly is the attempt to argue that he is being drafted as a pure pocket passer when he never ran a pro offense.

    I agree. I don't fear Griffin. He'll have some great individual performances, but over time he'll break his teams heart.

    I just hope he doesn't because a Redskin because I like him and would hate for him to go to such a joke of a bottom-feeding franchise. And I'd feel bad laughing at him as he loses to us and most people as is typical.
